Phillips Industries’ Electrical Harness Division Celebrates 10th Year Anniversary of Expansion and Achieves Production Growth and New Quality Certifications

Coahuila, Mexico (November 08, 2018) Phillips Industries’ Electrical Harness Division (EHD), located in the state of Coahuila, is celebrating their 10th anniversary of the expansion to Mexico producing Phillips’ electrical harnesses for the global trailer market.

EHD has experienced 600 percent growth since Phillips made the decision to expand production of electrical harnesses into Mexico in 2008. The EHD facility footprint has increased from 90,480 square feet to its current size of 140,000 square feet.

Because of the outstanding quality of the products manufactured at the EHD facility, Phillips electrical harnesses are standard on over 50% of trailers on the road in North America. In addition to marking a decade of manufacturing Phillips electrical harnesses, EHD also achieved the IATF-16949 quality certification in 2018.

EHD has the lowest standard lead time in the industry and can deliver custom harnesses in just two to three weeks. Take a look at EHD’s facility here in a new video recently launched, hi-lighting the location, the people, and present and future capabilities of EHD.

“The successes we have had at EHD rests entirely on people who work here,” commented Filberto Coello, director of Mexican operations for Phillips Industries. “Our employees are truly invested in this business; committed to the company and to our customers. They are responsible for the quality and greater than 98% on-time delivery for our products. Congratulations to everyone on reaching our 10-year anniversary as a significant trailer industry supplier.” EHD has been recognized by the governor of the state of Coahuila, Mexico to be one of the best companies to work for in the region.

Rob Phillips, president and COO added his congratulations, “We are not only proud to celebrate ten years manufacturing our harnesses at EHD, but also proud of the continuous improvement we have seen every year since we established this operation; EHD has completely transformed our business.
